Photo by @lynseyaddario | Cindy Lopez peeks in on her new baby, Aria Victoria Orta, born at 32 weeks. Lopez came every day from home to visit and breastfeed her for the six weeks Aria spent in the neonatal intensive care unit. During my career as a photojournalist I have documented maternal mortality across the developing world but for my most recent @natgeo story, ‘Giving Life Can Still Be Deadly,’ I spent several months focusing on this issue at home in the U.S. and in Somaliland. The U.S. is one of only two developed countries where the rate of women dying from pregnancy has gotten worse since 1990. The rate of maternal deaths remains stubbornly high in the United States: about 14 deaths for every 100,000 live births. Better basic care could help, as it has in the developing world.
